This travel agency did a terrific job for us. They were quite responsive and flexible about tweaking our itinerary during the planning stages, and were instantly available in country when we accidentally got on the wrong train. They put us in lovely, intimate lodging with lots of character in walkable and interesting neighborhoods with good accessibility to public transportation. They arranged seamless connections with drivers and guides who were pleasant, knowledgeable and spoke English well.
In Paris we had two wonderful walking tours: one of the islands in the Seine including a short and sweet visit to Notre Dam Cathedral and another to the Museum d'Orsey. While walking we had the chance to learn a lot of history and to ask questions about contemporary issues of our very capable guide. A dinner cruise on the Seine was very special. I arranged separately for us to attend a concert in La Sainte Chapelle which was fabulous!
In the small town of Bayeux in Normandie we stayed at a B & B in the home of a lovely couple who have done a beautiful job remodeling a house that dates back to the 13th century. We were the only guests and it felt like we were visiting friends.
The Loire Valley was beautiful, and the accommodations charming but if I had it to do over I think I'd choose to spend those two nights in Brittany. The train trip from the Loire to Caen in Normandie took up a whole day as it was a local with many stops.
